Cashmere student pages in state House of Representatives
Jessica Alloway, a 14-year-old eighth-grader at Cashmere Middle School, served as a page Jan. 10-14 in the Washington House of Representatives. She was sponsored by her 12th District Representative Cary Condotta.
As a page, Alloway observed the Legislature in action and was responsible for delivering messages and documents to legislators in their offices, committee meetings and the House chamber during floor sessions. She also continued her studies for two hours each day.
Alloway is the daughter of Irvin and Jennifer Alloway of Cashmere.
Each week, students 14 to 16-years-old from across the state serve in the legislative page program. They must have a legislative member as a sponsor, as well as permission from their school and parents. Additionally, pages are required to hold a grade-point average of C+ or better.
